This lemonade is so refreshing on a hot summers day served with ice.
I enjoy a nice cold glass of this on a hot day, of course that’s if we get a good day.
This summer hasn’t been that great at the moment. We get an odd bit of sunshine followed by rain, dark clouds and a bit of wind. I’ve still been wearing my coat and its almost June. Hopefully the weather picks up for June. Here in Ireland we are lucky to get hot weather for two weeks… Anyways back to the lemonade…!!This lemonade is best using fresh lemons. Was funny watching me juicing my lemons today, i don’t have a Juicer so i used the end of a wooden spoon and then put the juice through a sieve to get the seeds and bits out. It sure did the trick.
I prefer to use a Blender to mix mine to make sure all the sugar is incorporated, Nobody wants to drink grainy lemonade.
As you see from using the Blender a little foam developed on the top of the juice. This does nothing what so ever to the taste and will disappear after a few minutes. I just took the photos right after preparing mine.
- 2 and ½ Cups of Freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
- ⅓ Cup Sugar
- 5 Cups of Water
- Put all your ingredients in a blender and whiz until all the sugar is incorporated. Add more or less sugar depending on how sweet or Bitter you want your lemonade.
- Store in a jug in the fridge. I like to store mine in this handy Fridge Door Jug.
- Serve with ice and fresh lemon slices if desired.
